"The Rancho Viejo School is committed to educating students to be independent thinkers, resourceful problem solvers, good citizens, and life-long learners. Rancho Viejo is dedicated to its Montessori philosophy and accelerated curriculum, which embraces interactive and self-directed learning, academic excellence, respect and appreciation for the environment, and the celebration of all peoples and cultures.
We are an independent school serving students age two through ninth grade. The Rancho Viejo School welcomes children without regard to race, religion, color, or creed and seeks students of diverse talents, backgrounds, experiences, and cultures who will benefit from an environment that encourages social, academic, physical, and moral development.
Rancho Viejo School's Montessori based educational philosophy takes into account both evidence of a student's academic achievement and the family's long term commitment to a productive school-family partnership that will support such growth.
